Carlos Ramirez, 45, was charged with felony count of disorderly conduct – transmitting a threat at school, according to Chicago Police.

Officers responded at 3:40 p.m. Monday to Ebinger Elementary at 7350 W. Pratt Ave., where two employees got into a fight and one threatened to come back with a gun and “shoot the school up,” police News Affairs Officer Michelle Tannehill said.
